I just gave up on putting my puppy in her crate at night. she drove us nuts no matter where we had the crate. She would dig and whine and generally poop in it no matter what we did. She sleeps quietly under the covers with us all night. Mind you- there is no romance any more. She sleeps between us. At least we are getting better sleep this way? A dog bed next to your bed on the floor maybe with the door closed. I know she is too young for this in some people's mind, but it works for us with no problems.
